I thought the mailing list would be interested to know that NumPy and SciPy
are among the few default packages installed on Amazon Elastic MapReduce, so
you can use them in Python streaming Hadoop jobs on Amazon.

Amazon Elastic MapReduce is a web service that enables businesses,
researchers, data analysts, and developers to easily and cost-effectively
process vast amounts of data. It utilizes a hosted Hadoop framework running
on the web-scale infrastructure of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2)
and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

Using Amazon Elastic MapReduce, you can instantly provision as much or as
little capacity as you like to perform data-intensive tasks for applications
such as web indexing, data mining, log file analysis, machine learning,
financial analysis, scientific simulation, and bioinformatics research.
Amazon Elastic MapReduce lets you focus on crunching or analyzing your data
without having to worry about time-consuming set-up, management or tuning of
Hadoop clusters or the compute capacity upon which they sit.
List of installed packages is here:
